Saints team for Racing 92 clash

Saints team for Racing 92 clash

The Saints team has been named for Saturday’s European Rugby Champions Cup game at Racing 92.

There are five changes to the starting line-up from that which ran out against Bath last Saturday, three up front and two in the backs.

Captain Lee Dickson returns to scrum-half to lead the team out at Stade Yves du Manoir in Colombes, with Tom Stephenson partnering Luther Burrell in the centres.

Meanwhile up front there is a first start in Saints colours for Victor Matfield, while Alex Waller returns at prop and Courtney Lawes joins the pack for what will be a stiff test against the Top 14 high-flyers.

Saturday’s game is being televised live from Paris on BT Sport from 3:15pm (UK time), with live text commentary also available at www.saintslive.co.uk

There is an extended interview with Victor Matfield in this week’s Saints podcast, along with chats with forwards coach Dorian West, hooker Mikey Haywood and prop Kieran Brookes.
